Find a Clockwork power source for Wyatt Anderson to study
I'm interested in finding out more about how the Clockwork King's robots work. He may be a villain, but he's made some amazing creations. Could you find a Clockwork power source for me to study?
I appreciate this, Red Tomax. The more we know about the Clockwork, the better we can combat them. Try looking in Atlas Park, Kings Rows, Perez Park, Galaxy City, Boomtown, or Skyway City to find some.
Defeat x @ Any (Clockwork)
Thank you very much. I'm sure this will help me understand the Clockwork better. I'll let you know what I discover.
Combat the Clockwork in the office
This Clockwork power source you recovered doesn't answer as many questions as I had hoped. In fact, I can't seem to make it function at all.
Perhaps the key lies in one of the Clockwork's bases of operation. According to my sources, there's a Clockwork base in a nearby office building, under the control of a mighty robot called Bolts. I want you to combat the Clockwork in that office. Bring back anything that look like a power broadcasting unit, ok?
The plot is thickening, as they say.
You've wondered for a long time about the Clockwork's mysterious power source. now that the answer seems near, there'll be no slowing you down.
Thanks. This Clockwork broadcasting unit may help us figure out how the Clockwork King powers his minions. I must say, it's an odd design for the Clockwork. I'll have to run a number of tests.
Go into the sewers and recover the device
I'm really stumped by the broadcasting unit you found in that Clockwork lair. It doesn't look anything like the clockwork King's normal designs!
I've been scanniong for a signal similar to the one the device outputs, and I've finally located one. It's in a section of teh Paragon City sewers. I need you to go into the sewers and recover the device. If I were you, I'd be prepared for a fight.
Tread carefully, hero. I have no idea what you are going to find down there.
As you enter the sewers, you hear the sound of distant radio static.
Objective: You found the broadcasting device.
Mission Complete: You have defeated the Vahzilok and found the broadcasting device.
Puzzling, Red Tomax. This device you took from the Vahzilok looks just like the one you found in the Clockwork base.
These devices look identical. Strange that you should find one in a Clockwork base and the other in a Vahzilok den. I believe they are emitting the same signal, but I'm not sure how it could be guilding the Clockwork.
Collect more Clockwork parts
Interesting. This device you found in the Vahzilok den is just like the one you discovered in the Clockwork hideout. Red Tomax, I do'n' think they were designed by the Clockwork King at all! I believe Vahzilok's been using these devices to communicate with his minions; the Clockwork probably just took it for scrap.
It looks like we're no nearer to figuring out how the Clockwork King powers his robots. Can you collect some more Clockwork parts for me? I'd like to see if I can recreate the robots in my lab.
About 15 should do it, Red Tomax.
Defeat x (Clockwork)
Excellent work! I'll take these Clockwork parts to my lab and begin work with them. I'm sure I can figure out the Clockwork King's power source.
Destroy the Clockwork and recover the research data
Help! They're in my lab! The Clockwork King's robots! Believe it or not, Red Tomax, they're the same defunct robots you collected for me earlier. I don't know how it happened, but they're somehow functioning again!
I've sealed them in, but they'll get out eventually. You've got to destroy the Clockwork and recover the research data from my computer. Hurry, before they destroy it! The location of my lab is marked on your map.
That data is our only hope of defeating the Clockwork king!
You tread carefully through the mishmash of broken beakers and strange fluids.
Objective: You have salvaged the data
Mission Complete: You have cleared the lab and salvaged the computer data
Thank you so much for combating those Clockwork in my lab. You saved me some vital discoveries.
Well, Red Tomax, I think I've figured out how the Clockwork operate. I had my lab cameras trained on those defunct Clockwork all night, and I just reviewed the film. It seems that the Clockwork slowly rose to life and began to reassemble each other! At the same time, my lab equipment detected a noticeable energy spike. Red Tomax, the energy was psychic in nature!
As hard as it may be to believe, the Clockwork King must control his robots through psychic energy. Apparently, he's some sort of powerful telekenetic. That's how he makes his machines work, even though physics dictates they should be little more than wind-up toys.
Souvenir: Damaged power source
This burned out piece of technology represents the beginning and the end of a puzzling mystery. It seeems the Clockwork King powers his constructs through telekinesis alone. The magnitude of his power must be astronomical for him to operate so many Clockwork at once. and at such a great range. All that remains now is to find the Clockwork King and force him to stop his mental marionettes. You learned all this in an adventure you've come to think of as:
The Mind of a King
It all began when your contact asked you to retrieve a Clockwork power source for analysis. You hit the streets. defeating mnay Clockwork before you recovered a suitable piece.
But the piece was only a small of the mystery. Your contact sent you to a Clockwork base to retrieve a Clockwork broadcasting unit. After examining the unit. your contact was able to detect a similar signal coming from the sewers. You followed the signal. and discovered that is came from a Vahzilok broadcasting unit.
Your contact could only conclude that Vahzilok was the device's owner. and that the Clockwork were merely using it for scrap. Puzzled. your contact asked you to recover some more Clockwork parts. Determined to solve the mystery. you went back to the streets.
You returned with 15 defeated robots. which your contact tried to reactivate. These efforts were not successful. but the robots were spurred to life anyway by the mental energies of the Clockwork King.
